"This tale takes you to Sanjania, an island state whose electorate draw upon the English, American, Australian, and Canadian literary traditions. Marche has compiled this anthology, guiding the reader from the rough-and-tumble pamphlets of 1870s Sanjania as much as the intense longing of the writings of the modern day Sanjanian Diaspora. those works turn into a Rashomon-like tale, introducing us to illustrious Sanjanian figures resembling the repentant prostitute Pigeon Blackhat and the magically gifted couple Caesar and Endurance." "The result's an evocation of a fictional nation - from the beginning pangs of its first settlers and their hardy vernacular, to its progressive years, and all of the method to the present."--BOOK JACKET.
